Stealing Orchestra continues to give away the albums they originally released commercially. The newest free offering is their album, The Incredible Shrinking Band, originally released in 2003 on Zounds/Sabotage.
The album is just what you have come to expect from Stealing Orchestra, instrumental performances with copious samples presented as rock, alternative, free jazz, waltzes, and weirdness. The world is a better place with creative musicians like these infiltrating the music.

In reviewing Stealing Orchestra at the time of the Stereogamy release, Cool and Strange Music Magazine wrote, "No matter how off the map Mascarenhas' musical funhouse gets, with things running backward and jumping in at the most inappropriate spots, there is always the semblance of a song.... It's like a soundtrack a spy movie run through a blender."
Originally released in 2000 (NorteSul, EMI), Stereogamy was the first full length album by Stealing Orchestra. The album's tracks run the gamut from cartoony sound collages, like those of The Bran Flakes, to experimental work, like that of Renaldo and the Loaf, to more traditional instrumental compositions.

Party People in a Can is the surf rock band of Pedro Costa, an associate of Portugal's incredible Stealing Orchestra. Featuring laidback songs about the beach, red wine, skateboarding, and surfing, the new album from Party People in a Can is well-timed for a summer release. Costa somehow managed to capture that satisying summer evening feeling of the pure pleasure of an iced drink after an active day in the sun.
Party People in a Can claim Sesimbra as hometown, the seaside vacation city famous for its beaches, restaurants, and nightlife. This album has much the same relaxing effect as a day at the beach. Pour a glass and enjoy on this hot summer day. "Like Music Hall Dancers..." is a new summer anthem.

Just in time for your year-end mixes, You Are Not Stealing Records presents two new releases. The first, from experimental pop artist G.G. Allin's Dick is the EP Groovy Tunes for Old Ladies. In this release, G.G. Allin's Dick ventures away from the bouncy sound of the earlier EPs and heads into heavier sound, yet still remaining true to the silly, bizarre universe of G.G. Allin's Dick.
The second release comes from the classical metal noise outfit Dr. Phibes and The Ten Plagues of Egypt with Le Sacre du Printemps (Le Sacrifice), an interpretation of Igor Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring" (Весна священная, Vesna svyashchennaya), the controversial, legendary ballet score that drove concertgoers to a frenzied riot at it's premiere in 1913. If this is the desired effect of your office holiday party mix, you have struck gold!
